"Plan of Central Bazars of Constantinople"

"Plan of Central Bazars of Constantinople"

Part of the plan of the bazaars in Volume II of "Three Years in Constantinople" by Charles White, 1844. The slave market is visible on the left, which is to the south of the other bazaars given the sideways orientation of the map. The slave market is also to the southwest of the Nuruosmaniye Mosque.

The long street G-H-I-K is Kalpakcilar Caddesi, and the area of the slave market appears to be within a triangle with the west end of Tavuk Pazari Sokak as its apex, Bileyciler Sokak as its western boundary, Kurkculer Pazari Sokak on the eastern side, and with Yeniceriler Caddesi as its southern base.
